Line2 turns your iPad into a full-fledged phone
Have you ever wondered if you could use an iPad to make phone calls? Thanks to the magic of VoIP telephony, doing so is possible, and there actually exist more than a few apps built specifically for that purpose.

Line2 is a VoIP app that has been available for the iPhone and for Android smartphones for quite a while now, and a dedicated iPad version is about to be released pretty soon. For $10 per month, Line2 provides its subscribers with unlimited calling and texting nationwide, and in case if you are wondering, signing up for a free one week trial is offered as well. The service boasts the ability to work over both Wi-Fi and 3G, which is very convenient, and international calls are also available at pretty affordable rates.

Those of you interested in giving Line2 for iPad a shot, however, will need to be patient as the app is scheduled for launch later this month – on July 28, to be exact. In the meantime, feel free to check out a demo of Line2 for iPad in the video that we have embedded below.
